Statement by Commissioner Oettinger on Italy

Met dank overgenomen van Europese Commissie (EC), gepubliceerd op dinsdag 29 mei 2018.

I fully respect the will of voters being left, right or centre and in every country. By referring to the actual market developments in Italy, I did not mean to be disrespectful and I apologise for this. Italy as a founding member played and plays an important role in European integration and I hope it will continue on this path.
